COLUMBIA TOWNSHIP, Ohio -- Flashing stop signs have been erected at the scene of a deadly crash that claimed the lives of four Brunswick High School. 

The flashing signs were installed on Thursday evening and are just the latest step to make the area safer for drivers. Earlier this week Columbia Township lowered the speed limit on Boston Road to 25 miles per hour, down from 55 miles per hour at the time of the deadly crash.

Classmates Lexi Poerner, 16, Jeffrey Chaya, 18, Blake Bartchak, 17, and Kevin Fox all died June 3rd in the early morning wreck. A fifth passenger, Julia Romita, 17, was injured in the crash.

Caution signs were put up at the rail road crossing days after the crash and plans are in place to have the incline grade on the road beneath the railroad crossing reduced.
